Playhouse Disney Canada - Review and Giveaway

Giveaway open to Canadians.



I love television. There, I said it. I also allow my girls to watch TV...almost every day! Of course, I always sit right beside them, watching intently and discussing the storylines. I would never, ever use their TV time to get my own work done, or to have a moment of peace. (My fingers are crossed right now, by the way.)

In all honestly, their TV time is (usually) less than an hour, and since I can't always be right beside them analyzing the shows, I choose the channels and programs in advance...and keep the remote out of reach! I am quite picky about what they watch, and for that reason I was excited to be chosen as part of the Playhouse Disney Canada blog tour through Mom Central.

I trust Disney to provide age-appropriate, entertaining programming for my girls. Of course, my daughters could name many classic Disney characters before even seeing them on TV (Mickey and friends, Pooh and Tigger), since they were exposed to them in books or on merchandise. They have some new Playhouse Disney favourites as well, like Handy Manny and Special Agent Oso. When asked who they like the best, Frannie's response is "Mickey Mouse", and Maggie's is "Winnie Pooh"...so there's something to be said for the classics! My girls are also thrilled to see other well-loved friends, like Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, showing up in the Playhouse Disney lineup. Plus, I feel like I can justify a bit of TV time when I see valuable aspects to the programming, such as music, numbers, colours, etc.

Another great resource you might want to check out is the Playhouse Disney website, where you can find games, activities, parent information and their programming schedule.

Playhouse Disney Canada is offering a fantastic prize pack for one lucky This Mom Loves reader. Included in the pack: a Playhouse Disney DVD with five full episodes (you could sit and watch too, like a good mom, or get a whole lot of work done!), stickers, crayons and a colouring magnet, and a magnetic pen. (I love the pen...it's now stuck to the fridge, so we will never be penless again. There's nothing like signing important forms in crayon...but I digress.)

To enter, simply visit the Playhouse Disney Canada website, and come back and leave a comment letting me know who your child's (or your!) favourite Playhouse Disney character is. Be sure to leave your email address (if it's not on your profile) so I can contact you if you win!

For additional entries (after the mandatory entry has been completed), leave a separate comment letting me know that:
  • you follow This Mom Loves publicly through Google Friend Connect
  • you subcribe to This Mom Loves through email (make sure your subscription is activated)
  • you follow @thismomloves on Twitter, and tweet about this giveaway (feel free to retweet mine)
  • you like Playhouse Disney Canada on Facebook
This contest is open to Canadians, and ends on Monday, August 16th at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. Good luck, and don't forget to check out my sidebar for other great giveaways running right now!

Oh, and just so you know, you are encouraged to enter this contest multiple times (i.e. on different blogs participating in the blog tour), but you will only be able to win one Prize Pack!

Disclaimer: I am participating in the Playhouse Disney Blog Tour through Mom Central. I received a Playhouse Disney prize pack and a thank you gift card to facilitate this post. Opinions are, as always, my own.

Handy Manny wins hands down in our house!
I must admit though that we're a fan of Kids CBC here.

We love My Friends Tigger and Pooh as well as Strawberry Shortcake. Oh -- and I always watch the shows with my kids the first time at least. I love kids shows (but I normally fold laundry while I watch so I can say that I've accomplished something!). Thanks for the great giveaway!
